A 2-in-1 computer might sound like a real technological achievement, but it is nothing new these days, considering how many companies have started to roll out multi-mode machines. Take Lenovo’s Yoga range for instance, where these are able to function as a standard laptop, fold it all the way to the back to be a tablet, or leave it standing in a tent mode. Acer wants in on the multiple-in-one bandwagon too, with word that the upcoming Acer Aspire Switch 10 will feature three different modes for you to work with.
In a nutshell, the Acer Aspire Switch 10 happens to be a touchscreen tablet that sports a 10.1” display, where it will run on the latest Windows 8.1 operating system. Throw in a keyboard dock and it will suddenly be able to function as a notebook. Whenever you take the tablet out from the dock and turn it around so that it faces away from the keyboard when docked, it would function as a great presentation device. Pretty bulky in my opinion compared to the Lenovo Yoga series that is already attached by the hinge, but at least it is an alternative. The Acer Aspire Switch 10 comes with an aluminum case, and we do hope that its hardware specifications will be revealed in due time.
